{Tue} Technique: Club Scrap July Technique Challenge - Stamping through Stencils

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

I have been playing with some new stuff...like Gel Press (I bought a 6"x6" at a stamp show) and Ken Oliver's Color Burst Liquid Metals Heavy Metals! 
I used them to create this card, inspired by Club Scrap July Technique Challenge - stamping through stencils:

I used pearlescent paints on the Gel Press and Club Scrap Stencils (like Twin Tags Honeycomb) for the panel. 
I masked the panel with the same stencils to stamp the french script (Paris Flea Market), using Brilliance Pearlescent Purple ink pad.
I outlined the branches with different metallic markers, blended some colors (with the Round Mini Blender Tool) and watercolored with Ken Oliver's Color Burst Liquid Metals Heavy Metals Yellow Gold.

Finally, I added a mat, ribbon, coin and adhered the panel to the card base.

I'll have a video later (I didn't have time to edit it yet, 'cause my dh has been sick...), showing how I used the Gel Press...so check back!


Here's another card, using Transformations papers and Leaf and Stone Stencil:

I stenciled the gingko leaves on printed paper, using VersaMagic ink pads and round mini blender tool.
Leaving the stencil on, stamp different stamp images (Crewel & Unusual Jumbo unmounted stamps) with Memento Coffee Bean.
I stamped sentiment (Creative License Greeting unmounted stamps) on the bottom panel.
Finally, I added ribbon and coin.
